MobiControl run/kill APK

MobiControl run/kill APK

Hi there,

i installed a custom application which changes the background/lockscreen image.

Installation with MCPS works fine.

Now i want to start/kill the application via script but i think i'm doing it wrong.

 

Application: BackgroundChanger.apk <-> BackgroundChanger.pkg

 

I found:

kill_application BackgroundChanger

start BackgroundChanger

 

Do i have to add something because nothing is happening.

The argument of the two script commands should be bundle-ID (e.g. com.abc.myapp, net.soti.surf, etc.) rather than the app's common name.

And depending on what you're using for management (AE vs. Android+) the kill_application may not work at all. I have not had any success with it on AEDO Zebra devices despite using it frequently with DA Zebra devices.

Thanks with bundle-ID the start command works fine. The kill command is actual not testable because we're testing to close the application by itself actually.
